Heritage Counts Case study in Low Carbon retrofit 



STBA technical expert Harry Paticas was commissioned to design a whole house retrofit using the STBA approach, for a house in Bournville in Birmingham. The brief included not retaining and adding to the house’s character, which is of course important in this model village built by Cadburys around the turn of the last century.
